    Braid line for jig reel.

    Here's another vote for Daiwa J-Braid ×8. I used original Power Pro for a long time and liked it, but last year switched to the J-Braid on my jig stick. Casts and feels so much better. Braid over straight 40lb mono which I used growing up let's me use smaller reels now for surface iron.

    Brown Bait

    As a young kid in the late 70's I grew up fishing the Daily Double and the La Jollan if i had extra $$. Paul Nakamura was captain of the DD at the time and Fred Huber was a young deckhand.

    Rod recomendation for Daiwa Lexa 400 HSP

    I've used my 400 on an older 270-8c and a 270h-8c and slightly prefer the 270 for what the original post from 2017 was asking. Perfect for ME to throw both plastics and lighter iron like Tady C. Gotta get clamp though.

In a non stick pan over medium heat and a little cooking oil brown til panko is crispy. Just before taking out pour a little beer over the top and let it cook another 20-30...

    53.46 Lb. Yellowtail off Crystal Pier

    As a kid the OB pier bait shop always had a hoop net ready just for this reason. You would just run over there and they would give it to you. During the early years my brother landed a 30lb class YT this way. In 1979 I landed a 24lb black seabass at the end of the pier this way. It took a few...

    Caught a ......salmon? Off of buoy number 3 in Point Loma.

    Cool catch congrats! We got one to the boat while fishing for reds off LJ in April. Ate a frozen chove on the way up. When we saw it three of us were kinda shocked. We didn't want to gaff it so made quick decision to bounce it. Snapped the leader and was gone, bummer. My dear late brother Jun...
